thanks a lot for that feedback! Your message reveals a bug - not
in the debcheck tool, luckily - but in the way how we have encoded
A fixed script is attached.
If you are interested in what went wrong: In order to check whether
packages a and b are co-installable I created a pseudo-package
Depends: a, b
and checked installability of the package "query". This does not work
correctly when a is both the name of a real package and a virtual package,
as it happenend in the case that you indicated. The solution consisted
simply in adding bogus version constraints:
Depends: a (>=0) ,b (>=0)
since versionend dependencies can only be satisfied by real packages.
